The nicotine deposition is one of the key reasons for development of lung diseases.

We all know that smokers have a much higher risk of cancer than non-smokers. Therefore, doctors advise everyone to get rid of that bad habit.

But, if you can not quit smoking, you can at least try in some way to reduce the risk.

There are some products which can certainly help you to expand the airways.
You should be aware that the lungs can not become fully clean only with the consumption of these products, but you can at least, to some certain levels, get rid of the toxins and thus reduce the chance of cancer development.


Corn contains beta – cryptoxanthin which is believed that protects the lungs from cancer because it is a strong antioxidant. On the other hand, keep in mind that most packaged corn on the shelves in stores is genetically modified, so it is better to look at its origin.




It is a powerful antioxidant that can be found in various types of fish like tuna, salmon and cod, but also lamb meat, eggs and cereals. It is preferable to stick to eggs and cereals and try to avoid meat.



Both onions and garlic contain anticancer properties. Garlic helps for many diseases and infections and even lung cancer. Interestingly, at people who have cancer, it prevents its spreading.



Ginger Root

This is a strong tool for dumping toxins from the lungs. If you drink tea with ginger root it will make your breathing much more easier and later you can eat the piece of ginger.


Besides already well known as a source of vitamins, oranges also contain cryptoxanthin which has preventive effect against lung cancer.



This herb is packed with large quantities of iron and is very useful as a lung disinfectant and fighting against many kinds of infections.


Pine Needles tea

This tea is traditionally used for mouth and throat rinsing, but can be a good ally in the prevention and fight against lung cancer.
